Yes, ants kept invading my room, but it was my fault - I left a chocolate out on my first night. On my final night, the ants were numerous enough that the hotel offered to relocate me rather than subject me to fumigation.
From top to bottom: this hotel was perfect: beautiful, brand new, impeccably well-located. The executive lounge was dreamy--and those who worked there went above and beyond, even fetching me bircher muesli from the restaurant downstairs and surprising me with cookies one night when they could tell I'd just been through a tough phone call. After that, they always asked how I was doing, and I could tell they meant it.
The furnishings were modern, colorful, and whimsical: exactly how I think the Renaissance brand wants to be known. I can't believe how few guests there were in the hotel. I bet that'll change soon enough. I rested easy, got lots of work done, arrived at all my meetings in plenty of time, and strolled effortlessly through central Bangkok whenever I wanted some fresh air. I can't wait for a reason to go back.
One last note: I've also stayed at the JW Marriott in Bangkok. One word: tired. By comparison the Renaissance isn't just a breath of fresh air, it's a hurricane.
